Once again their voices will be heard, their achievements will be shared and their challenges will be revealed! Each year Cando selects six Aboriginal youth participants from numerous nominations. The Cando Board, Conference Committee and Cando Staff thoughtfully select the youth based upon their strengths, initiatives, accomplishments, entrepreneurial spirit of launching their careers, and participation within their communities."

"Cando recognizes that providing ongoing professional development opportunities is necessary to keep EDOs abreast of the current issues affecting the economic spheres they work within. An EDO is often the primary resource in dealing with prospective business partners, elected leaders and outside third parties. This represents a shift in the EDO role from focusing on assisting existing businesses to providing higher level advice and guidance on both existing business issues and a wide range of new opportunities.

"EDOs say the 16 competencies are the ones they believe to be the most common and important to their work. They are the primary areas of knowledge and skills that are needed to do the job well. Although the majority of EDOs involved with developing this process feel capable of doing their jobs, almost all said that there are areas that they need to improve their competence in some areas. They felt that having a more detailed description of the competencies was a big help in thinking about their professional development as well as their job requirements."
